Thank you. Last night had the first Zoom meeting with the Lewy Body Diagnosis (LBD) support group. About 10 people on the call, discussing their loved-one's condition and the coping mechanisms they have developed to support their loved ones.

I learned that Alzheimer's and LBD are two separate diagnoses that don't necessarily go together. I thought they were more closely related; like LBD was a severe symptom of Alzheimers, or something. But nope, they are completely separate diagnoses.

And he has both. :(

I'm also so sorry this is happening to your family - I'm so glad your father is able to get the care he needs though. The support structure you've provided is immense :)

I'm sorry your family is going through that. There isn't much that I could say to help but I hope you know you can reach out to talk.
